tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:

Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Heat a large pot of salted water to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and roughly chop the garlic. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice, separating the white bottoms and green tops. Cut off and discard the root end of the bok choy; roughly chop. In a bowl, whisk together the tahini, soy sauce, vinegar, sweet chili sauce, honey (kneading the packet before opening), and half the sesame oil until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. 

Cook the noodles:
2 Cook the noodles:

Add the noodles to the pot of boiling water; cook, stirring occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes, or until al dente (still slightly firm to the bite). Turn off the heat; reserving 1/2 cup of the noodle cooking water, drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Top with the remaining sesame oil and stir to coat. 

Start the chicken:
3 Start the chicken:

While the noodles cook, pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken in an even layer and cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the chopped garlic and sliced white bottoms of the scallions; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until softened.

5 Finish the noodles & serve your dish:

To the pot of cooked noodles, add the cooked chicken and bok choy, sauce, and half the reserved noodle cooking water. Cook on medium-high, stirring vigorously, 1 to 2 minutes, or until coated.

Serve the finished noodles garnished with the sliced green tops of the scallions. Enjoy!
